What Can Rhinoplasty Correct?
The nose is one of the first things on a person’s face that others notice. So whether the nose is too small, too big, has a bump, or has a wide tip, it can be fixed via a rhinoplasty at the office of Dr. Chad Tattini in Bloomington, Illinois. Congenital or acquired defects can be traditionally addressed with the open rhinoplasty approach and can even be combined with septal work if airway/functional issues exist as well. Therefore, the shape, angle, and size of your nose can be improved. Structural problems can be corrected simultaneously to these cosmetic improvements. Rhinoplasty can have a significant impact on your self-image and self-confidence.

An ideal candidate for a rhinoplasty is someone who wants to correct certain features of their nose such as the tip, dorsal hump, or their crooked appearance. These people tend to be the most satisfied, especially if they can see before and after pictures to give them a sense of the extent of a typical improvement. The patients that are not ideal candidates for rhinoplasty surgery are patients that want to completely overhaul their entire nose/face. Often this is a false expectation that leads to dissatisfaction.
Recovery After Rhinoplasty
The recovery from a rhinoplasty is often not as bad as one typically thinks. If osteotomies (breaking bone) are needed, the pain can be a little higher. The reduction of a dorsal hump improvement is typically noticed immediately, but the finer improvements may take months to manifest as the swelling of the nose subsided. In some patients, this could even take 9-12 months.
